Always in creative effervescence, French artist Marie Beltrami (b. 1945) is a creator and plastic artist who lives and works in Paris. Addicted to singularity, because singularity is equivalent to freedom, she exhibits her glorious chaotic style, her amazing creations and her work rich in original and renewed aesthetic experiences.
From jewellery to dresses, accessories, drawings, photos, sculptures and even performances in Paris, London, New York and Shanghai, Beltrami transforms everything she touches into dreamlike chaos and constantly challenges the world to reinvent itself.
The feeling, the instinct of the moment, the intuition of an emotion that passes through flashes and revelations with a particular attraction for the forbidden senses are Beltrami’s motto and main source of inspiration when it comes to create her universe.
Today, after 18 years of a glorious collaboration with Jean-Paul Goude, she has regained her life as a jewelry designer.
The origins of her jewellery reside in 1978, a time where the important impact of the cultural scene led her to design jewels and fashion accessories such as the iconic pink lobster, the colour pencil-nail clips necklaces, the GS headlight bag, Metro ticket bag, Nelcha in evazotte, hula hoop bag, bent plastic earrings.
In 2014, Louiz Elizabeth the mouse, was born in gold and silver, a crazy success that has not been denied since, starring in rings, signet rings, earrings and later on, followed by other jewellery, all more inventive than the others and true to the visionary spirit of this artist from elsewhere.
Words are also one of her great passions, with a formidable history, Beltrami’s latest literary object is not identifiable by her literary invention, according to some professionals of the profession: Inga Binga, her latest book, is the seismic odyssey of a heroine who must save the world.
